DAISY Award Nomination

Patients, visitors, nurses, physicians, and employees of USA Health may nominate a nurse who deserves the DAISY Award by filling out this online form or filling out a paper form and submitting it to the nurse’s station, dropping the nomination in a DAISY collection box located throughout the facility, or leaving it with a staff member.

Each DAISY Award Honoree will be recognized and receive a certificate, a DAISY Award pin, and a hand-carved stone sculpture titled A Healer’s Touch. Additionally, the unit will celebrate with Cinnabon cinnamon rolls.

About the DAISY Award

The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary, compassionate and skillful care provided by nurses every day. An acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem, the DAISY Foundation was formed in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at age 33 of complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). The nursing care Patrick received when hospitalized profoundly touched his family. Read more about why they started The DAISY Foundation. USA Health is proud to be a DAISY Award Partner, recognizing our outstanding nurses with this prestigious honor.
